secrets that very few people know about them. this is one man that can help us now. i deal with students from universities where they make documents and then ask me questions. i would suggest that we engage the students from our universities to come and learn about our system and then encourage our retirees to volunteer sometimes so they can share their experience. yesterday, i was in the park and i was listening to this professor from uc-berkeley who bring students here to talk about sfpuc and all of the politics, the bonding. i was really surprised that a professor from berkeley has taken it upon himself to share information like this, because as you know, commissioners, you do what you have to do, but what leads things to happen is politics. and our young people should know about all the politicking that goes on and how sometimes if you pay attention to the maintenance of our infrastructure it pays good dividends, and if you do not pay attention to the maintenance of our infrastructure then we have rapid issues. jon is a great guy in all the time i have known him. it is really said th

over here because of exactly what i am saying. we come some of us, at the very few of us left, who have been monitoring the clean water projects for a long time. there are very few commissioners who have monitored them for as long as we have monitored them. and it is good that sometimes, you know, past general managers or people who have had some deep working experiences come back on the commission. and it is good that we have had the opportunity for others who worked once for the water department to come back and share their experiences. but what we, the constituents, are paying attention to right now is how best to utilize every gallon of water, clean water. especially had ceci -- hetch hetche water. those are my comments. thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> i am sorry. that is on another item. no more speakers on this one. the next item is communication. the commissioners the chair received a revised version of the ledger summary, which was updated as of this morning -- the letter summary, which was updated as of this morning. there were e-mails that came in l

time it leaves us and is assigned to a hearing officer takes 14 days. that is the parties have two weeks to agree upon a hearing officer and a hearing date within 90 degrees. if they do not do that within two weeks, which is quite a long time, it comes back to us for normal assignment. that is the second proposed change. the third one is on page three, section d. the current rule reads no reassignment of case. that is the problem. when a case gets assigned, it can flow out there whenever -- for however long. i think the case has languished and not gone to a hearing within 90 days, we take it back to the commission either to be heard by us or for an individual commissioner to do it. the fourth is later on. it is on page seven, i believe, at least on my copy. this is to do with what happens when the hearing is over. under the current procedures, the hearing officer, who is paid 300 or $400 an hour, is given time to write a lengthy report including telling us what he or she thinks should happen in the case. we have to read the transcript any way to come to our independent judgment, so
